MALLORY CATLETT

DIRECTOR/dramaturg

Nocturne

An incomplete and inaccurate account of the love affair between George Sand & Frederic Chopin by Tanya Marquardt. I directed a workshop production in March at Dixon Place. This is a play I read after grad school that was written by writer, performer and colleague from Vancouver. It is something I wanted to do with and for actors Jessica Jelliffe and Peter Blomquist – my longtime collaborators. I am not sure what the next step will be, but it was great to work on. Special thanks to Rick Burkhardt for helping Peter look and sound like he can play the piano and to Alex Horwitz, who you will see play at the end of this excerpt. The full video is up for viewing too, but this is just an excerpt of moments throughout.
